Folder redirection not working
trying to set a folder redirection for the My Documents folder to a users network drive on the local server. I already have the users home folder mapped to N: which works fine
I have disabled offline files as a computer settings and set a folder redirection in the user side under Policies - Windows Settings - Folder redirection - My Documents to
1.Basic - redirect everyones folder to the same location
2.Create a folder for each user under root path
3.Root path as \\servername\Users\Students\Work
Am I missing something here? Also this is in a test OU so no other policies are affecting the user or computer
Any ideas would be greatly received!

are you missing %username% as what you have done is set everyones docs to the same place

"redirect everyones folder to the same location" setting shouldn't need %username% as the user specific stuff gets appended automatically.
Can the users in question access the share ok using UNC? Any events in eventviewer about failed redirection?
